Flight hacking

“Flight hacking” definition:

The use of legal, legitimate techniques to save substantial amounts of money on flight purchases.  Does not refer to “hacking” of airline or travel agency websites or databases; rather, it refers to the use of specialized knowledge about airlines and their policies, flight routes, frequent flyer program rules, and the like to secure prices that are not immediately available to the general public.  Includes strategies such as hidden city fares, fuel dumping, mileage running, error fares, open jaw tickets, as well as dozens, if not hundreds of similar techniques.
